      Hell no, if everything is solid or easily repairable after you pull the carpet and youre planning on taking it off the pan later on down the road for a resto, dont take it off twice. Clean that thing up, make it safe, and rock the hell outta it! Reason being, if you have a solid and original as hell oval and it isnt putting yourself or anyone else in danger, just clean, update, lower it, drive it. Turn heads with an ALL original oval! Just my opinion

      I meant convince her we need them today... she wants the car done like yesterday but we are on today's budget.

      I mean you have to let them think they are in control

      OK, It's been bout another year so I figured it was time for an update. I still do not have the 63DC. Stay tuned it may be for sale shortly its super dry but is now missing the gates and engine cover and bench seat. He moved the truck to safety but did not get the gates and seat like I told him, They were wrapped up and stored flat and dry. Theives stole them and scrapped them im sure.

      Now for the good part I still have my oval but got a suprise call bout a month ago now
      We been tryin to settle our diffrences on a price( remember this is a woman Im dealin with) But after alot of me pullin my hair out it panned out ok. It has its few wrong parts from over the years but who would have thought I would pull up and see this.





























      and after a bit of washing.














      and finally at rest with family
